Release date broken by some UK retailers

Australian gamers have now been joined by those from the United Kingdom in the GTA release date rush. Pictures of the game appeared earlier in the week, and pressure from customers has led some independent retailers to succumb and offer the game ahead of its April 29th street date.

Online messageboards are filled with stories of various small stores offering both versions of the game early, with many charging £45 or even £50. More surprisingly, major supermarkets also seem to be in, several images like providing forum goers with information on where might be the best place to grab the game ahead of time.

ASDA claims that this was an "isolated incident", while other gamers managed to get the title from .

At the time of writing, statistics tracking website MyGamerCard.net listed over 1000 players of the Xbox 360 version so far.

Canadian cops hop on the GTA IV stupid wagon

Probably feeling left out as the world's biggest moron parade marches by without them, the Calgary police department has come out to say that Grand Theft Auto IV is a "grave concern" and is worried about children becoming exposed to it, thus turning into psychopathic k!llers because they played a videogame.

This news comes as posted in the Calgary Sun:

City cops are warning parents to be careful about exposing children to video game violence, saying it’s a possible training ground for criminal endeavours.
The article also quotes Calgary police spokesman Kevin Brookwell:

From the Calgary Police Service perspective, we see these types of video games as a grave concern… Because of the lack of consequences and even reward — (youth) don’t understand the impact violence can have.

In some cases, those very games may be training grounds for people to commit criminal activity.
It's with bitter amusement that I watch trained professionals who are used to dealing with hardened criminals and dangerous thugs running scared of a videogame. The real concern that should be had in Calgary is why its police department wasted time scaremongering over a game when it could have been dealing with real crime. But of course, nobody's going to ask a question like that, because people are too stupid to see anything beyond the scary, scary game that is going to transform innocent little Billy into a supervillain overnight.

I've seen that happen, you know. One day I gave my brother a copy of San Andreas, the very next morning he was manipulating metal objects with his mind and plotting to destroy Professor Charles Xavier.

READ...

from IGN review.....

For those wanting to know which version looks better, the edge goes to the PS3. The textures and framerate are comparable, but the PS3 has far less pop-in. The 360 has richer colors, but the PS3 has better anti-aliasing making it look a little cleaner. Because GTA IV can preload onto the PS3 hard drive, the in-game loads are faster. Don't worry Xbox owners, the load times are rarely more than 30 seconds and don't occur very often. The slight visual edge goes to PS3, but the 360 is no slouch. Either version will do you proud.

Past GTA titles have had mild-to-serious framerate issues and technical glitches, because the games were trying to do far more than the PlayStation 2 could handle. While GTA IV is pushing the PS3 and 360 to the limit, it also runs amazingly well. Sure, there are framerate hitches here and there and (particularly on 360) there is some texture pop-in, but it actually runs better than I expected.


1UP.com also confirmed this, so come to grasp with that fact but the most important thing is that the game is fyah 10/10 on both consoles, it just looks better on PS3 and performs better on the PS3.

^Stuff like that depends on your TV and how is calibrated and what settings you got on in both consoles. That RGB option both consoles have is not that great and actually is better for PC monitors, don't turn any of that on in the consoles unless you rocking the console in Monitor through DVI connection.

The driving is as tough as people are saying... Turning fu*king sucks up to this point.
All of the minigames are a.ss (so far I've done bowling, darts)
The graphics are looking clean on the 360 version. If the PS3 is supposed to look better, than it must be amazing.

lemme know if yall got any questions.. I'll be playing for another 2-3 hours.
My girl made me go to sleep when she found me playing GTA at 4am :(.

Our Take: We’ll keep it simple as we’ve compared both the 360 and PS3 ones extensively during previews. The 360 one, contrary to the early previews and as of the latest preview stages, is a bit darker and has a few AA issues to this day. Overall a little more toned out so to say in terms of the color hue. There isn’t much contrast as there is more saturation, which does tend to wash out the colors a tiny bit, which is noticeable if you compare it to the PS3 that comes with a more vivid color palette and softer edges. The washed out colors somewhat help to mask the AA issues on the 360 though, so it seems to match up with the PS3 relatively. That is quite possibly the best explanation you guys will ever get. No bullsh*t here.

so basically everyone is experiencing different things. maybe it all depends on how the fu*k you're experiencing the game. TV, time of day, weather. wtf. n*ggaz need to stop worrying so much about which one will look SLIGHTLY better cuz at the end of the day you're not gonna be thinking "damn the colors must look SOOOOOOOO much better." you're gonna be thinking "OH sh*t DID THAT n*gga JUST GET SMACKED BY AN 18-WHEELER AND GO FLYING INTO THE OCEAN?!" fanboys are just big babies yo i swear to god.
